  • Hello and TGIF!

    Sometimes I get texts from people that say “TGIF!” and I am always excited for the person who texted the message, but since I’m self employed, I don’t really feel that “YAY, it’s the weekend” feeling. I still get excited for weekends because it’s less work than a weekday, but there’s always something to do:)

    No complaints here, working weekends is better than a “kick in the teeth with a frozen mukluk!!” (a phrase used on the prairies….)

    Now that summer is here I pulled out my reusable Starbucks Cup to make a homemade iced coffee. I lost the straw that comes with it though…

    starbucks coffee reusable cupI may have had a wee bit too much of my refreshing java…

    While I was voicing some auditions, the hyper bug bit me, I didn’t know Mike was still recording….

    The real me revealed (you have been warned….haha)

    I went on, and on and on…

    After listening to that would you believe these are some of my clients?HAHA, (I wouldn’t either….) lol

    Hopefully they:

    A) Don’t read my blog

    or

    B) Have a good sense of humour

    Mike and I had a seminar earlier today and I was trying to be all handy and bring our own homemade lunch….

    I made my homemade Lara Bars

    Super great snack for when your on the go!homemade Lara Bar(I ate mine on an escalator!)

    The rest of my homemade lunch was ready to be eaten during our break until Mike says the magic words!YAY!! RED ROBIN!

    While my homemade lunch was wilting in the truck, I ordered a “Mesa Chicken Salad, minus the chicken and add a veggie patty with a side of buzz sauce.”

    Have you ever taken your lunch to work only to let it sit in your lunch kit while you treat yourself  and “dine out”?

    I was inhaling the water like it was going outta style. Really nice waitress kept me hydrated. Good kid!

    How’s your weekend shaping up? Tomorrow night I am going to an event called Summer Sizzle.

    It’s a charity event for The Peter Aids Foundation and the ticket says “Dress to Impress” (oh great! haha)

    The location is at the Pamela Masik Studio’s. This woman is a seriously interesting and talented artist.

    Here are a couple of Pamela Masik’s masterpieces:

    I was trying to find pictures without boobies on her site to show you, but most of them (that I saw) have nudity, so go to her site if you want to explore more of her artistic endeavours.

    I have no problem with the nude art at all- I just know I have some younger readers, so I wanna stay fresh on this domain!

    Speaking of FRESH- Did I show you the Stormtech video we shot in Florida?

    I especially liked holding an alligator while saying my line and also at the end when Mike put the waterproof video camera in the water and he got a fishy swimming by. We were a lil warm in the jackets, but they are gonna be sweet for fall…

    No fall talk though…Summer is HERE! So get out there and enjoy it!!!

    Talk to you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!

  • Hello!!! Welcome to January 18th!

    Do you ever jump the gun on certain things? I’ve done it twice today. Both things regarding my work. I didn’t get answers right away so I proceeded to email back, asking questions that if I would have waited 2 minutes, I would have the answer to.

    So potentially I have annoyed 2 important people by my impatience. False Start!

    Oh well! Hopefully my charm will smooth over my impatient requests……;)  As Axel would say, ” All we need is just a little patience.”

    Onto my staring problem……..

    His name…Jasper Dale Sellers. His game…capturing my heart. (ohhh sooo sappy I know!)

    I cannot stop thinking about him though.  It’s my brothers son, born yesterday. My little brother is now a dad. I am so proud of him. Jasper has amazing parents.

    Beautiful little family.

    Bundle of JOY…

    Ok- I know babies aren’t some new invention, so I won’t go on and on and on and on and on and on…..(just know how much I love him:)

    I’ve been busy working on updating my voice demo’s. It’s been going good. Had a few jobs today as well. One phone system, and 2 videos. While we were working, Mike says, “I’m so hungry, I can’t even see…” Yikes! Ok! I ran to the kitchen to make us some food. I made him a big omelette and I heated up some leftover brown rice and veggies.

    (I don’t normally have a plant right by my stove, but the pot busted yesterday so we put the plant in a bag and now we need to buy another pot)

    I added a couple falafel’s that we bought at Costco. I know they have preservatives and I should make my own, but it’s a nice quick protein boost.

    I dumped on some salsa and good to go.

    I also made a quick batch of my homemade Lara Bars. I didn’t even cut them up, Just one big pie we can cut off when we want some.

    I still have some work to do so I better get going! Hope you are having a wonderful day! I have a tri update coming soon, so come on back! I run with the club tonight and we have a speaker coming to talk to us about mental toughness! ohhh I like it:)

    Here is me swimming my laps this am. (I have to tell you later about my math mess up! I failed Grade 12 math and it is coming to haunt me!! haha)
